Early Access FAQ

Why Early Access?

More than anything else, we cannot wait for players to build, fly, crash, and fly again!
The core pillar of KSP2 is building and flying cool rockets. While we have additional features planned like colonies, interstellar travel, and multiplayer, we first want to hear back from players about the core fundamental experience.
We believe that going through early access for KSP2 will ultimately allow us to build a better game through a supportive dialogue with our community.

How long will this game be in Early Access?

KSP 2 will stay in Early Access until we feel that the game and its full feature set are at our desired level of quality. Check out our roadmap above for our planned feature releases and make sure to follow our social channels for further information on timing of updates.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

The 1.0 version of KSP 2 will include significantly more features than the Early Access version, such as what you see on the roadmap plus other items added along the way. This includes:
· More parts and the opportunity for more creative builds
· More star systems and hidden anomalies
· Improved quality of life and onboarding to open up the vast beauty of space to even more players
· Continued performance improvements and visual updates
We can’t wait for you to join us on this journey into the stars!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Initial release of Early Access will include:
• Remodeled and visually updated Kerbolar system with celestial secrets to uncover
• Hundreds of new and improved parts including engines, procedural wings, and more
• Customize your vehicles with creative paint jobs
• Improved experience for new and returning players:
o Animated Tutorials
o Improved User Interface
o Upgraded Map View
• Fully revamped assembly & flight interfaces
• More for players to discover (we don’t want to spoil everything)

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

We expect the price of KSP 2 to increase once all of the planned features are added by the 1.0 release.

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

Your feedback will be crucial in helping to make KSP 2 the best it can be, and we want to hear about everything that is important to you. Are the tutorials effective and are there enough of them? Have the user interface changes made a meaningful impact? Is the localization accurate?
Most importantly, we want players to play for thousands of hours. What will keep you playing? During Early Access there will be a form on the KSP website to submit detailed feedback. It can also be accessed from the game’s launcher and the Steam page.
